Last month I wrote on the “Essential Plug-in” being a caching plug-in. Maybe I “miswrote” or something like that. Maybe I should have written that the “Essential Plug-in” is …… YOU !
“You” is a double-edged sword of course. Just this morning I was checking my personal website only to find that I’m number gazillion or something similar on the Alexa scale of things after a year of weekly posting.
However, nothing quite throws a monkey-wrench into the gears of things like Google. Whole income streams can and will disappear when Google decides that its time to re-up the search engine results ranking algorithm with something like; “Panda” to “Grizzly”. Whatever …… it causes pain and suffering for the Internet Marketer.
While nothing really changes …… everything changes in cyberspace! Change is the one constant that we can all depend on.
I think its funny when you read all these Internet Marketing Landing Pages that assure you that if you follow their system, you can achieve similar results. Not in this Galaxy! By the time you get your cannons Online and in action, not only will it be dark outside, things will have changed Online to such an extent that you could have saved yourself a great deal of effort, ( saying nothing of the pain and suffering you’ll have to endure with the tech struggles ) if you had just come up with some sort of a battle plan of your own.
Worse is when you go to depend on a piece of software, or website service to mange whatever, and you find that they have closed their site down. etc, etc, etc.
Everything changes, and changes fast Online. However, the only thing that you can count on day in and day out is …… YOU!
You are always learning and getting stronger day in and day out, no one can ever take that away from you. After 5 years in this business, should the whole thing go up in a “Denial-Of-Service-Sttack”, you should be up and running in a couple of hours. No Sweat!
The next time you are thinking of investing big dollars into someones Internet Marketing program, take a moment and think about investing in yourself. That investment will pay you dividends for a lifetime!
